Hard to figure either one out

I've never understood why women love cats. Cats are independent, they don't listen, they don't come in when you call, they like to stay out all night, and when they're home they like to be left alone and sleep.

In other words, every quality that women hate in a man, they love in a cat.

Scared Beef was my favorite radio hour of all time. Anyone remember it?

The guest was a (fictional) restaurant owner who was looking at 3 hour long lines at his tony Malibu steakhouse. His secret? Scared Beef. The cows were chased around with chainsaws and such for 24 hours before they were slaughtered. It made the taste of a scared steak simply out of this world.

You can imagine the calls this show got.

What a surprise (not): "Nike, Under Armour, Adidas not interested in deal with Lonzo Ball"

by LA Ute

An endorsement deal with Nike, Under Armour or Adidas is not in the cards for Lonzo Ball.

Ball's father, LaVar, confirmed that the three shoe and apparel companies informed him they were not interested in completing a deal with his son. Sources with the three companies told that they indeed were moving on.

Never in the history of modern-day shoe endorsements have the big companies all stepped away from a potential top pick nearly two months before the NBA draft. But LaVar, who has been representing Lonzo in the deal, has offered something that has no precedent.... ll/story/_/id/19264024

I didn't hear that one, but here are a couple of my favorites

To start with, the restaurant guy is Ted Bell, owner of Ted's of Beverly Hills. His ads have the jingle that ends in, "Here at Ted's, we want to put our meat in your mouth."

Here are my three favorite Hendrie bits from the radio:

1) Steve Bozell saying that Thanksgiving should only be for white people because black people don't have anything to be thankful for. The Bozell's were going to have some blacks over to their house on Thanksgiving, however. They were going to serve the food, clean up, etc. The black lady who called in with her family behind her yelling encouragement to rip on Bozell caused Phil to break character with laughter.

2) Jay Santos of the Citizens Auxillary Police trying to shut down a high school cheerleader car wash because it was a front for prostitution.

3) Some unnamed "guest" who called in asking why Ed Smart got to claim Elizabeth on his taxes for 2002 when she was living with Brian David Mitchell for more than half the year.

The dude had prosthetics for both legs, knee to foot, and in place of his hands.

I disagree with our constant war fighting, but these guys...

They deserve a lot of respect.

What the hey? While we're at it, here's Ted Bell talking about his new slogan. (Probably NSFW)

I have no idea how Phil Hendrie pulls this act off day after day. It's genius, IMO.

Chris Paul is a very talented player that I hope starts his summer vacation after tonight. Also, here's a good quote...

by SquirtAlert

"Heís truly one of the best at never leading his team anywhere while getting paid a lot.

Furthermore, if you want a vocal leader on the court who will yell at the refs all game long and kick his legs out like a baby having a tantrum, itís hard not to select Paul over other guards like Gary Payton, Oscar Robertson, and others." /nba-playoffs-2017-los-angeles-clippers-ut ah-jazz-chris-paul-john-stockton-history-b ooks

In their first round roundup they featured two stories about Bolles, his rise from his troubled past and his call out to those struggling. Aside from football talent, this is the kind of thing you want to see in the media.

2017 NFL draft 1st-round results: One fun fact about all 32 picks

It's funny. I've been checking out the respective message boards for NFL teams as our players get drafted, and the sentiment is not always what you'd expect.

Broncos fans were hating big time on Bolles the other day. Good thing is that he doesn't have to do a ton to make them eat crow.

Williams was a mixed bag, but mostly due to people who didn't really study available players. One guy had posted a thread with a lengthy list of the players he'd take in order on day two, and Williams was at the top, so it seems as if the guys who know a thing or two are pretty happy with the pick.

I just checked out 49erswebzone, and they're over the moon. Some are saying he's a "good value", and even "2nd round talent". Good stuff, very excited to see how he does next season. ft/188728-cup-joe-williams-4th-coleman/

Wow. Was he projected that high, if at all, in any mock drafts?

And, the 9ers traded up to get him. Awesome.
